SO to Mangaweka 'Yellow Church' Gallery... Look for the brightly painted building, right on State Highway One, in the beautiful Rangitikei district, being the creative studio of Resident Artist/Photographer & Musician Richard Aslett since early 2006.

The 'Yellow Church' Gallery is full of many differing Artworks from Richard other local & international Artists. You will find Paintings, Photography, Ceramics, Wood-Turning, Screen-Prints, Fridge Magnets, Gift Cards, Post Cards, Sculpture, Books and even Music CD's, plus other Arty Nick-Nacks and curious things of intertest, to be viewed and purchased.

Serving in the Gallery you will usually find Richard and quite possibly his trusty 'Apprentice' Michael Cathels, often wearing their now trademark kiwiana 'Walk-Shorts and Socks' - a fashion venture that started out as an April Fool's prank, yet after much admiration & positive comments from the ladies (and even a few men!) their stylish iconic looks soon captured the attention of the 'NZ Today Magazine' - which ran a feature in 2021. This led to an interview on National Radio RNZ ... and in turn an appearance in 2022 on TV3's 'The Project' - with presenter Jesse Mulligan getting in on the act too!

Richard is also an experienced Musician, having played in many bands, right from the original Punk days of the late 70's, right through to today. He now plays drums and sings for the four-piece live pop & rock band. 'New Variants!' - Earlier he also appeared in the earlier rounds of the latest New Zealand's Got Talent TV1 show, singing The Doors "Light my Fire" - then being invited back as a "crowd favorite" and played again at the Grand Final. Later he appeared on the X-Factor NZ and the re-vamped NZ 'Popstars' program.

The MYCG puts on regular Exhibitions from established, emerging and even beginner artists (we all started somewhere!). Should you be interested in exhibiting, please contact Richard with some samples of your works and send to: . Thanks.

Mangaweka boasts a great Cafe, several charging points for electric cars, the famous 'Historic' Main Street, a museum and some of the cheapest petrol in NZ, plus... of course Mangaweka 'Yellow Church' Gallery!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Thank you, Richard & Co, Mangaweka "Yellow Church" Gallery, SH1.
